Memorial Day Cemeteries

Dan and I enjoy visiting cemeteries.  There are so many stories there.

Early in May, it was a beautiful evening so we decided to find the geocache in the Overbrook Cemetery.  The flowers were beautiful—the car isn’t bad!



The day was muggy when we visited our parents cemeteries on May 25th.  And, just as we arrived home all the severe weather broke out near the Chapman area, only about 15 or so miles from where we were decorating graves only a few hours before.. 

Left  sunflowers at Mom & Dad’s.  And roses at Dan’s parents.



Decided to pick up a geocache on the way home at this beautiful stone abandoned Catholic church cemetery.  It is located in the flint hills south of I70.



There was a geocache at this cemetery in Wabaunsee county.  Beautiful location to view the green, rolling Flint Hills.


Same spot, opposite direction:


Finally, we visited a Native American burial plot near Paxico last Saturday afternoon. 


It was after we walked around reading stones and dates that we noticed a sign that asked all who visited to not walk through the plot as it was considered sacred ground by the tribe.
